Hi Experts,

I have to configure linked server to Mysql from Oracle i have already read articles on internet and edit, all accessory files. it seems there is a issue with my listner.ora file. SID_LIST_LISTENER for MY SQL is myodbc5.  please correct my Listner file.

        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP) (HOST = oramob.local) (PORT = 1522))
        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC) (KEY = EXTPROC1526))

     (SID_DESC =
        (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1)
    ( SID_DESC =
        (SID_NAME = myodbc5)
        (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1)
        (PROGRAM = dg4odbc)

    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = oramob.local)(PORT = 1521))

ADR_BASE_LISTENER = /u01/app/oracle

I think just by configuring the listener it might not be sufficient. For connecting to hetrogenous database Oracle needs some gateway. ODBC provides the right gateway. So, the listener configuration would have to be done alongwith the ODBC connection.

I think the below article provides a right example for your case. Try it out probably this should help.

You will have to download and install the Oracle Gateway for the heterogeneous db connections. It's not included in the database install.

The gateway can be downloaded here
or folllow the links (see all ) for your OS.

The Gateway manual can be found here
